One month ago he released his album Gioventù Bruciata.
And now Mahmood has given given an hour long live performance on Italian radio station Radio2Live of songs from the album in celebration.
The set included his Eurovision entry “Soldi”.
The intimate show was given in front of only 100 people. They were the lucky ones who managed to get a ticket in the online ticket queue. The show was presented by Pier Ferrantini and by Carolina Di Domenica, who did the radio commentary for RAI on Eurovision 2018.
In the clip below from about 1:00 Mahmood gives an interview about his participation in Eurovision. Roughly translated, the chat went something like this.
‘The preparations are underway. I’m happy with the team. I remain the same and it doesn’t bother too much what others say, otherwise I’ll start panicking. I wasn’t afraid to compete at San Remo with Soldi because I was sure it would somehow pay off.”
Mahmood currently leads the Spotify streams with more the 30 million streams and “Soldi” has been certified double platinum in Italy. So far a Eurovision version hasn’t dropped on Spotify, but three remixes have been released.
This remix below comes from Benny Benassi, in Italian DJ/Producer of tech/electro/house. He’s probably most known for his hit “Satisfaction”. This remix adds a different beat to Soldi and electro elements.
